Is Your Outdoor Property Protected?

Most businessowners policies protect outdoor property with a standard limit of $2,500 for five specific perils: fire, lightning, explosion, riot or civil commotion, and aircraft. While this offers some protection for your outdoor investments, how likely are these events to occur? And if they do, will $2,500 be enough to cover your loss(es) associated with outdoor fences, antennas, light poles, signs not attached to buildings, and tree and shrub damage, including debris removal?

Consider these common claims situations not covered by a typical policy:

• A summer windstorm rolls through and blows down numerous trees on your property.

• Vandals damage the pole sign in your parking lot.

• A reader board display in the front of your building is stolen.

• Due to an auto accident on the roadway adjacent to your property, a vehicle destroys your redwood fencing.

At Society, we keep it simple and protect your property the same way we do your building. We cover common occurrences such as wind, vandalism, theft and vehicle damage for a minimum of $10,000, without limiting coverage to rare occurring perils. Small Details like this make a Big Difference for your business.
